  1. The nimrod 3-pack is marked down to $45.30 on amazon... I think that’s the most heavily discounted it’s ever been, so far
  2. You might be onto something there, maybe they plan to reuse this head for another character. And i agree, this figure is just weird and a missed opportunity. I guess they figure A-force she-hulk is their "happy" version? I will say the body sculpt is pretty nice, although i think it was more suited to the grey version
  3. I have Arcade and Red Skull preordered (from earlier when target was doing a 25% off sale) but hope to find Deathstrike in the wild. only really interested in Wanda from the D+ wave . But of course if a sale hits all bets are off.
  4. Yep... VERY familiar with the awkward walk in, check aisle, walk out 30 seconds later empty-handed scenario. At least with Target and WG there's something else i'm there to buy anyhow, and Gamestop is geeky enough that i'm comfortable telling any associates who ask that i'm just checking the action figure stock. Gotta say that waiting for nova to show up while Canada's already able to preorder Quasar is pretty annoying, but it is what it is. Guess we should be thankful these characters are getting figures at all, since apparently hasbro does not want to include them in a normal wave.. and at
  5. Would be nice if nova would start showing up in Walgreens someday
  6. You might want to check the price of the Storm-Thunderbird 2-pack. or the Deadly Origins widow. Or the Starforce Captain Marvel. And i'm pretty sure Katy will be marked down before too long, as well. Heck, i even got the AoU Hulkbuster 2-pack on clearance... it just took awhile. I think the iron spider/man 2-pack and the red hulk are about the only target exclusives that haven't gone on clearance or marked down at some point. Not really feeling today's reveals very much, i guess happy is OK but i don't particularly need gold armor IM. Don't really need another rescue and as far as Car
  7. I mean, normally a movie earns like 95% of its revenue in the first 45 days. But that occurs when people know it will probably be months before they can see it on demand. I wonder how many people will choose to wait it out since a month and a half is not that long. and of course the other question is how much will it cost to see as VOD - will it be the normal $5.99 or so, or will it be a higher price point
  8. MODOK is awesome, hope your hellfire club arrives soon as it is an awesome set. only real downside is the ladies knees can be pretty gummy so they can have trouble standing. but still, a great set
  9. I guess i don't really get why some people are so upset about other people shelling out $350 for a haslab sentinel. Nobody's forcing you to buy anything and there are other options for sentinels out there if you want one and the haslab version doesn't strike you as a good value, is too much for your budget, etc. Its just a weird thing to get angry about imo. as for me personally, its not only more than i would be willing to spend but also i just don't think i have room for this guy in my display, nor does his size lend itself to the type of toy photography i tend to do. But i certai
  10. I could definitely see Excalibur box set being the sdcc exclusive - seems like the only other option would be an Amazon box set, unless they just opt for a themed wave. Anyhow I’m guessing it will be similar to last year where pulse premium get priority and the rest get to preorder for the spring. In any case I have no real attachment to Excalibur so I would probably skip it but no doubt it would be extremely popular
  11. I've seen the Shang-Chi wave in its entirety multiple times at multiple walmarts, plus a handful of the wave at Target (and a few Katys). Hellfire Club arrived today, beautiful set and great packaging, definitely a good value for the price although it was a long wait. Still, since its not often everybody gets a chance to buy the sdcc set, i'm not gonna complain about the delay. I'm guessing it will be a similar scenario this year, hopefully they will come up with something as compelling as this set. Now we need Leland and Mastermind
  12. Definitely agree with this. As for why there is an argument, it comes down to two complaints: 1. "I don't want to buy figures for characters i don't want just to complete the BAF - why can't he just be sold separately??" This neglects that of course you CAN buy the BAF separately on ebay etc but it will cost at least $60 in most cases, and often considerably more. People like to point to deluxe figures but in most cases those are priced lower because they are repaints of an existing BAF (that is, the tooling costs were already part of an earlier wave's budget). MODOK and Archangel's w
  13. I generally cherry pick waves, so i'd probably be better off arguing for more accessories over BAF parts, but in generally it feels like the BAF model has worked well in terms of allowing for more obscure characters to get figures, so i say keep it. You can always sell off BAF pieces you don't want or sell figures you don't want but needed to buy to get the BAF part. But let's not pretend BAF figures don't have their problems. in my experience they are just as prone as any other figure to having loose joints (and for me at least a bunch get loose ab crunch over time) and sometimes you g
  14. i think after the infinity war thanos was re-released in a 3-pack, it was "inevitable" that the armored thanos would see a similar re-release. i assume i'm not the only one who didn't bother building armored thanos for that reason. likewise, since i skipped iron man from endgame wave 3 /bro thor wave (as well as skipping the 2-pack with iron spider) this iron man will be new to my collection. anyhow i had assumed this set was an amazon exclusive but if bbts is carrying it i guess its not! despite its popularity i'll take my chances and see if i can get it during a sale, although the $60
  15. Well, at $60 (i think?) that Thanos/Iron Man set is not a bad deal, considering the usual price is $25 per figure and one of these is a BAF. Looks like that Nighthawk figure will finally have his day as i foresee a bunch of collectors scrambling to get him to obtain the "normal" armored Thanos right arm. I think this one is an amazon exclusive, right? which to me suggests it won't be as quickly discounted as it would if target or WM were selling it. So all in all probably not a set to try and wait for a markdown. But Odin seems like a figure one could definitely get at a sale price. I d
